I’m extremely chuffed to present my Sage Remedy Feather and Fan top, completely as of yesterday:
Ooo. Ahh. The perfect addition to any long-sleeved t-shirt or light sweater. At the moment, the weather is certainly more spring-like, but I do hope to get a decent amount of wear out of this top before it gets too warm. The yarn I used is Patons’ Merino Classic, which is actually a little bit scratchy. I’m tempted to start thinking about knitting a second version in cotton for the summer, except that I loathe knitting in cotton, with the exception of Spud and Chloe.
And so I am happy to say that this is officially an FO, which of course means that I’m already thinking about what to begin next. Having said that, yesterday I received in the mail my humongous set of dpns from U-nitt, and was excited to discover that they provide five needles of each size, instead of four. This means that I can switch the Too Cute to Resist Baby Leggings to the new bamboo needles and continue where I left off when I lost one of the dpns in February.
Even so, I like the idea of beginning something new and exciting. Perhaps even a new pattern. Gosh, I don’t actually have time for that right now, but it’s an exciting thought nevertheless.
I’ve nearly forgot to mention what I’m reading this week – which is silly, because that’s all I seem to do these days! That, and write. Write write write non-stop on my thesis and other papers. So I suppose I could say that I’m reading a lot of things. I’ll just mention that I’m supposed to be continuing on with The Scarlet Letter, though even that has been put on the backburner as of late for other things. Sigh, and I really would be interested in finishing it. Sometimes university is too crammed for its own good.
Head over to Ginny’s for the rest of today’s yarn-along. Happy Wednesday!
